He Won Her Heart.......

Meet Emily and Chris who will be married at The Lalumondiere on May 14th of this year. 
Perseverance, and an apology, worked well for these two.  


I met Chris on a float trip on the Big Piney River in the summer of
2006. Our friends set us up on a blind date. I thought Chris was cute
but didn’t really care for him, because he wasn’t a very nice person at
the time. That same weekend, when I got home, I found out my
grandfather passed away. After Chris found that out, he called me to
apologize about being a jerk and to express his condolences for my
loss. During the same phone call he asked me if I would be up to go
on a date once things settled down. So I gave Chris a second
chance. We went to the Elephant Bar in West County, where he
wined and dined me and we have been together ever since then.


I fell in love with her and I fell hard. So I decided on June 14, 2010 I
would take the plunge and ask Emily to marry me. Every year Emily’s
family goes on a family vacation to Norfork Lake so I thought that
would be the perfect place to ask her. We went on a boat ride where
I hid strawberries, chocolate and wine in the live well. I took her to a
secluded area on the lake where we could be alone. We had a nice
time just relaxing and talking until I found the right time to pop the big
question. I got down on my knee and showed her the ring I had
picked out all by myself, and as she started to cry, she said YES!
